John Deeth Blog: Jim Leach's wife donates $1000 to Obama

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

Elisabeth Leach, wife of former Iowa Republican Congressman Jim Leach,
donated $1,000 to Democrat Barack Obama's presidential campaign on
June 30, the quarterly reporting deadline. Elisabeth Leach listed her
occupation as art historian and author on the Federal Election
Commission campaign finance report. Her works include Grant Wood: The
Artist in the Hayloft, published in 2004. The June donation was
Elisabeth Leach's second donation of at least $250 to Obama. She also
donated $250 on March 24. Jim Leach was considered the most moderate
Republican in Congress during much of his 30-year tenure. He lost his
seat to Democrat Dave Loebsack in one of 2006's biggest upsets.
